After revealing its plan to invest about $35.5 billion in electrifying all its vehicles by 2025, Stellantis further announced some of its brands releasing electrified cars in the next few years, including Jeep. According to Stellantis, the first all-electric Jeep vehicle will be available before the third quarter of 2023. The rest of the Jeep lineup will also get an electric model by 2025.
Weeks after Stellantis announced its plans to launch four new electric platforms, which will form the basis for the electrification of most vehicles across its various brands, Stellantis revealed that the first Jeep electric vehicle will come next year (2023). EVS built on these platforms—the STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large, and STLA Frame, is expected to offer a driving range of 300 to 500 miles after a full charge.
After affirming the news earlier released by its parent company, Jeep further stated that it will utilize the platforms by offering an all-electric model across its entire lineup by 2025. From the news, we can easily deduce that we will likely have an electric Grand Cherokee, electric Wrangler, and so many more by 2025.
Jeep has recently shown that it is pretty serious about following the Stellantis’ electrification strategy. Jeep has recently revealed its plan to establish charging stations.
While we now know when to expect the first all-electric Jeep vehicle, thanks to the Stellantis’ electric future presentation, the big question that every Jeep fan is dying to get an answer to is, what will be the first Jeep car to get electrified?
Although Jeep has confirmed that its first battery-electric will come by 2023, while a BEV model in each of its segments will be by 2025, it did not specify on which nameplate the first all EV technology will launch.
However, considering the previewed Wrangler Magneto Concept, which Jeep unveiled at the Easter Jeep Safari in March last year. We won’t be surprised to see that the first electric Jeep model will be a Wrangler.
Before going fully into the EV war, the brand plans to add more plug-in hybrids to the already existing ones in its lineup. This iconic American brand already offers a plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe in the US. It plans to follow it up with a plug-in hybrid Grand Cherokee later this year. Besides these two, Jeep also offers plug-in hybrid versions of the Renegade and Compass in other markets (Europe and China).
The Jeep Magneto Concept is a stroke of engineering genius. Off-roading and electric motors are entirely foreign to the EV market. The Jeep Wrangler Magneto comes to the EV war with a different approach, taking an electric motor and pairing it with a six-speed manual transmission. According to Jeep, it gets from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds.
If and whenever it comes to life, we will definitely be thrilled by how this machine combines electric motors and off-roading.
